Ben's Chili Bowl "caters to vegetarians"?!

bennyt Oct 25, 2007 09:21 AM

I'm a Washingtonian who hasn't been to Ben's Chili Bowl in about seven years (since I became a vegetarian). I was browsing through the Zagat guide today, and in their review of Ben's Chili Bowl appeared the following words ("P.S., they cater to vegetarians too!"). Can anyone explain this in greater detail? I would love to know what my options are before shlepping out there... Thanks!

      Yes, of course- I didn't see the "next" buttom at the bottom of their online menu. Duh. Thanks!

      They have a veggie burger and vegetarian chili on their menu....I don't know if that is catering to vegetarians or not, but they do have some options for you.

        I wouldn't recommend the veggie burger, it's a bit bleh... My favorite there is chili cheese fries with veggie chili. it's kind of awful for you, but really delish

        Ordering vegetarian at Ben's is like getting the spaghetti at a steakhouse.
